    Hello

    My 03 Cab 3.0 sport manual has been a brilliantly reliable vehicle from new but recently has developed a strange and worrying problem.

    somewhere inside the driver side rear quarter panel around mid wheel arch emminates a strange clicking noise that never stops even when the car is stationary and parked and locked.

    The noise sometimes becomes a buzz and then after sometime goes back to clicking which itself can increase in frequency or die away to 1 click every second or so.

    The sound is kind of electromagnetic or similar to the noise that a solenoid or relay can make.

    This doesn't seem to affect the roof operation in any way but I have noticed that on occasion the central Locking becomes non responsive and may not respond until I put the key in the ignition and switch the ignition on. This may be a red herring but I thought I would mention this just in case. No other symptoms have been noticed.

    I wanted to pick the brains and experience of you fine Audi people before dragging my butt into a stealer for a fix.

    Any advice gratefully recieved.

    Thank you.

    I have a similar problem with my 1.8t sometimes it won't lock until i put the keys in the ignition. Would the clicking be a faulty alarm as the batteries can leak and cause a short which made mine make some very weird noises. Hope you get it sorted as these little things drive me mental ( i think i've got aspergers or something) :nyah:
